God is Able…. Trust Him!

 If you are going through a difficult time right now, perhaps God intends to use this trial to teach you to overcome it with His help. We can choose to doubt and be in despair, or ride the wave with confidence—not in ourselves—but in God alone. One of the most common questions asked of Believers is:  “How can anyone be at peace when the world is crashing down around us?” When peace cannot be found, doubt creeps in. Circumstances often dictate our feelings. Waking up to the morning news is enough to put thoughts of despair and fear into the heart. Does God even care about what’s going on? If He does, why doesn’t He do something? Doubt, insidious and deadly, causes the faint of heart to lose hope. Forget the platitudes that we overuse to comfort the hopeless. They are just salt on the wounds. Let us embrace the impossible…God is able (2 Timothy 1:12). That is why we must put our trust in God who is more than able and not in our feelings.

“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.” ~  James 1:6

It is easy to look around and see the seemingly unsolvable problems. Anyone can do that. Believers, we have the Lord God Jehovah, the Creator of the Universe, fighting for us! If we will but our trust Him for the outcome to our woes and trust Him for sustenance through the trial, we will have perfect peace. When doubt in God’s love and power start to take over your thoughts, you must stop them. They are lies straight from the pits of Hell. Think, who gains if you walk away from our Lord?

The Bible says we can control our thoughts. It takes diligence and practice to close our mind to lies. Too often we choose salvation and forgiveness of sin with the promise of eternal life with Him, but we reject His lordship over us. If we can trust Him for our eternity, why can’t we trust Him for our daily life?  His ways are not our ways the Bible teaches us in Isaiah 55:8-9:

We cannot know the thoughts and intents of God, but we can trust that He loves us and that His way is perfect to accomplish His will. We are mere sinful humans without the foresight to know what His will accomplishes or to know the whys of our sufferings.  We must endure, because we have placed ourselves in the palm of His hand so that He might exercise His will over us.To get our hearts and minds set on Him, we must pray, not necessarily for understanding, but to be able to submit to His will, trusting Him for the outcome. The fight is much larger than our own interests. Let us not allow Satan to rob us of our reward in heaven through doubt.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
